WEST SACRAMENTO-

Cultured Kitchen’s Cashews Cheese is a very popular product sold in natural food stores, but do not expect to find it anywhere anytime soon.

The organic raw food producer based out of West Sacramento voluntarily recalled all flavors of their non-dairy cashew cheese products.

The company feared those products may be contaminated with Salmonella.

“I was really bummed, but I am not very concerned. I have been eating it and I am not sick,” consumer Sheree Rezendes said.

Fifteen people were reported to have been poisoned with salmonella, 12 of those were from California.

The items recalled expire on April 19, 2014.

“I think it is absolutely respectable. I am not sure if something was actually found, but if it is a possibility and they are pulling it then good. They are trying to protect people,” Rezendes said.

While retailers have already pulled the products from their shelves the, California Department of Health  worries customers might still have it.

FOX40 spoke to one of the owners at Cultured Kitchen who said they are not sure that it was their products that made people sick.

Cultured Kitchen said they have sent samples off for lab testing and are not expecting to get those results until the end of the week.

Photos of the product labels can be found on the CDPH website.
